Warning: This is a back-dated post. 😆
Before the floggers gathering at Sandias on 27th April 07, I was informed by Jian that she’ll make a stopover in Ipoh with Durianberry on 3rd of May while on the way back to Penang from KL, and my first response was like “Cool, let’s go for food hunt!”
The girls arrive on 3rd May afternoon and went for some “jalan jalan” (walking) session on their own. I picked the girls at McDonalds at night and thus, began our food hunting for the night!
** Ipoh Food Hunt: 3rd May, Tong Sui Kai (Dessert Street) **
Upon our arrival, we were a bit disappointed cos the lower part of the stalls were closed. Nevertheless, I parked my car, got down, walked for some short distance while browsing through the stalls and before long, they say they wanna eat beef noodle.
First stop… Forgotten the stall number. It’s next to the stall selling “lolo” (closed as well). And the uncle who runs the stall has a pretty sad looking face…
Honestly, I have no idea what are in the bowl except for the hor fun (flat rice noodle) as I don’t (really) eat beef. The girls shared one bowl among themselves. Their comments: The soup is sweet but somehow tastes funny. The beef were NOT tender enough. (correction made by Jian)
The beef came but
beef pork balls were nowhere to be seen. Apparently, the pork balls are not given together with the noodle, it have to be ordered separately and it costs RM0.40 per piece. (Picture taken after the pork balls were added in). I think they prefer the this one. (According to Jian, the beef parts were really succulent and tender, so thumbs up!)
After 2 bowls of beef noodle, the girls wanna go for something else! Guess that floggers do have a same characteristic: Glutton! And while we’re walking to the other end of the street… we spotted something exotic… “ubi bakar” (roast sweet potatoes) and meat dumplings on the wheel!
** Ipoh Food Hunt: 3rd May, Man U Food Court **
Someone must be really in love with Manchester United until he/she named this food court Man U. As a Man U supporter, Durianberry can’t resist to take a shot at the main entrance which is just opposite Tong Sui Kai… LOL.
Once you sat down, 2 workers from 2 different stalls will approach you. One is from the usual drink counter while another one with laminated menu is from the dessert counter. You can choose which one you like, no obligation.
Now’s my turn to have my dinner hahaha. Wat tan hor (fried flat rice noodle with egg swirl broth), some places like KL call it Cantonese style fried noodle. It’s full of “wok hei” (breath of the wok) and yummylicious. Finish everything include the broth!
Also ordered the egg skin popiah and glad that they like it. They told me that Penang popiah tend to break loose once you pick them up with chopsticks but this one is wrapped tightly enough and still bursting with ingredients.
While eating, we planned for tomorrow’s outing… Like breakfast at Foh San, shopping for “heong peah”, salt baked chicken etc. But something happened and I missed the “dim sum”! *soooooobb*
